I began to write this little poem some time ago, and I think that hearing about the events in Westminster yesterday helped me to finish it: 


Fear's an enemy
Stalking me, and stalking us 
With many henchmen. 

Whether school bully,
Narcissist or terrorist, 
They want us to flinch.

But there are also
Better angels working hard:
We can be inspired.

On TV I see 
Much fearlessness and courage:
They're things of beauty. 

Stand up, breath deeply; 
Try not to fear fear itself:
There's steel in your bones.
